Villeneuve Confirmed With Sauber

Second Jacquo news in two days, while he’s testing with Renault to try and finish the season with them we are learning about his signing with Sauber for the next two years. Great news to have him back but too bad it’s not with Williams, BAR or Renault. Sauber is using a copy of the Ferrari but somehow don’t end up being all that fast. There’s also been a lot of rumbling about possible team directives helping out Ferrari a bit, I don’t see Villeneuve doing that. I wonder if that might be part of the reason for the signing, aside from his talent and the attention he brings they can say “see, we’re not a Ferrari farm team, we’ve got one of his “ennemies” driving for us!”.
